I owned her in the early noughties and renamed her: Norfolk In Chance.Awesum boat to sail, in a breeze! Bugger all rocker so needed a big push to get going and a sweet spot sweeter to find than a sober Irishman! But you knew when you wer in the groove. I once set a crazy speed in the early days of gps on this boat. Shame the flares have been cut off, if u had a bit much power or needed to pinch up with the kite up then it planned on the flair! Haha!Pop up some piccies if no one buys it I will!! Loads of good memories as my cherub after it was Aquamarine which some frenchy burnt!

But enjoy her, and get some piccies up General tips, keep it flat at all times and your weight fore and aft makes the biggest difference. A T-foil rudder would be very appropriate on Norfolk. More sail area! I had her in twin wire 97 rules mode but ran a 30m kite for fun - it loved it! But again keep it flat in all directions, if the bows up its god slow - the sweet spot downwind is scary, edge forward and it'll level out and just keep accelerating! Well until it pitch poles! It does this alot! Even managed to pitch pole it upwind!It's a carbon Kevlar hull, a little on the tubby side now but totally bomb proof!!
